{clean} Quick Super Spaghetti Sauce

My family enjoyed this sauce so much that I decided to create a blog entry for it.  Pureeing vegetables is a great way to sneak in vegetables to sauces and soups.  

Carrots are great because they are so sweet! Plus, carrots are packed with vitamin A and a host of health benefits including beautiful skin, cancer prevention, and anti-aging. 

Sauce from Costco

Ingredients:
  • 1 40 oz jar of White Linen Collection Marinara Sauce
  • 1 6 oz can no sodium added tomato paste (I get organic at Costco)
  • 5-6 large carrots, peeled
These directions are for a vitamix. I am not sure how well a regular blender will puree the carrots without cooking them down first. 

Directions:

1) Blend raw carrots until creamy.
2) Add sauce and tomato paste. Blend until combined well.
3) Continue on high until sauce is warmed in vitamix, pour into a stove top pan and heat, or microwave.

Serve over spaghetti squash, saut√©ed garlic spinach, and/or whole grain pasta. Top with fresh Parmesan cheese.
